UPDATE: Three more locations of interest have been added to the Ministry of Health Website, taking the total number of Bay of Plenty locations at this stage to six.

The locations of interest include The Doctors Bayfair, Countdown Bethlehem, Caltex Welcome Bay, Bethlehem Pharmacy and Your Pharmacy Mt Maunganui.

Details of times and dates that these locations were visited by those who have tested positive are given below.

More locations of interest will be uploaded to SunLive as they are announced.

Anyone visiting these locations is advised to stay at home, and get tested immediately as well as getting tested again five days after being exposed at this location of interest.

"Please continue to stay at home until you receive a negative day 5 test result," says a Ministry of Health spokesperson.

Due to the layout of the Ministry of Health website SunLive understands that searching Tauranga in the search bar does not necessarily cover any Mt Maunganui locations.

DRs, Bayfair, not on official

government site yet, but announced here? It’s pretty disconcerting that there’s a difference of ANY sort, especially as there are differing "areas of interest" as the cases are Te Puna, Papamoa, Pyes Pa.... When will we be told what’s going on - officially, and completely, regarding places that cases have been? https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-health-advice-public/contact-tracing-covid-19/covid-19-contact-tracing-locations-interest
